Response to pics?

 

Graeme;
Is that a prod, for a "How to" post? Well if my memory serves me right, I purchased
the kit from Micr Mark with everything needed to get you started. After that, all you need is to replenish your brass stock, and 3 chemicals. Which are also used in
the photography industry. Developing solution,exposure barrier, and acid. The process is almost identical to the way they make PC circuit boards, except your not
coating a board for circuit passages. Your dissolving the unwanted material ie: brass, nickel,or copper. Your left with the finished part. Making the drawings and
doing the layout work is the longest part of the job.Accuracy in scale measurements
is critical. Anyhow I concur, this would make a great article or publishing.
After all something's are just better in brass. Like your MTVL rear light covers,
and fuel can brackets.
